It is unbelievable to me that one year ago today, I was on the phone with a case manager from my insurance company and she gave me verbal approval for my Lap Band.  I never imagined what course that call was setting me on. 

I am less than a month from my bandiversary.  It is the best thing I’ve ever done.  It’s amazing how you can look back and see the steps that led you to where you are and you realize that even if it wasn’t what you planned, it is right where you should be.  That’s how I feel right now.  I never imagined I could lose this weight or that I’d ever have another baby. 

I can’t wait until this baby is here.  I want to see his/her little face and fall in love like I did with Christian and Hailey.  I mean, I love the baby now, but the moment you see your baby for the first time is like no other.  I can’t wait for that.  I’m also looking forward to losing the rest of the weight and getting to goal.  June can’t come fast enough.

    You are so right. So many wonderful things came to you since banding. I know the band didn’t do it, you did. But I’m with you. I’m so happy I made that decision.

    Hi Jaimie, it is nice to read your post, it has been a long time.

    I finally had my band implanted on 12/4, two months have almost past. I’ve lost about 25 pds. and I also am so glad that I did this. I have been on the weight roller coaster all of my life and to see myself losing weight and getting into those clothes that didn’t fit me for several years feels wonderful.

    I wish you well with your pregnancy and I know what a wonderful feeling it will be to see that little one once it arrives.
